If you’re anything like me, you’re always looking for ways to re-invent the food you eat. Sometimes this is a good thing, other times, it’s not such a good thing. In the case of these Sriracha Sweet Potato Fries, it’s a VERY good thing.
Sometimes the side dish is the main event. Has that ever been your experience? You sit down to a meal, looking forward to the main dish, only to be completely stunned then completely infatuated with the side dish instead? I love when that happens! I set out recently to make a really fabulous meal, but when all was said and done, the Roasted Brussels Sprouts stole the show. And honestly, I wasn’t sad about it.
The cauliflower craze is still going strong and I’m happily enjoying it! Ricing cauliflower has been a pretty big deal lately, but I’m a big fan of roasting big, beautiful florets of it. That caramelization just can’t be beat. And I’m pretty sure you’re going to love my version, lovingly called, “Ultimate Roasted Cauliflower.” Why? Well, read on!
When I was a kid, the ultimate snack I craved was a soft pretzel. It didn’t matter where we were, if there was a soft pretzel available, I wanted it. Imagine my excitement when they started packaging and selling soft pretzels in the grocery store!!! Holy crust!!! Could life get any better? Well sure it could and did, because I learned just how easy it is to make homemade soft pretzels from scratch. And they taste 100% more delicious than any store bought pretzel!
“You can pickle that!”
decree Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein – from the show Portlandia
Perhaps you haven’t seen this episode of one of my favorite shows. If you haven’t, Google it, because it’s hilarious. The premise is that you can pickle anything. And they mean anything from dropped ice cream cones to parking tickets. The skit is genius and I love it.
